SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 26, 2013
SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --inContact (NASDAQ: SAAS), the
leading provider of cloud contact center software and contact center agent
optimization tools, today announced the market availability of a major new
release of its award-winning cloud contact center platform. The new cloud
software release is designed to harmonize contact center operations by
creating a single integrated flow of multi-channel interactions, enabling
customers to communicate via their channel of preference, optimizing agent
workflow and contact handling and giving contact center managers a complete
view of their entire operations.
"As the cloud contact center leader, it's our role to deliver powerful
innovation that allows our customers to dramatically enhance their service
delivery strategies and this new release does just that," said Paul Jarman,
CEO of inContact. "Our new cloud Universal Queue addresses a major pain point
in the industry, enabling contact centers to integrate their operations in a
way that hasn't been possible in a traditional premise environment."
In addition, the new release features the debut of inCloud, a powerful,
API-driven ecosystem designed to enable customers to easily specify, implement
and deploy solutions that are pre-integrated into the inContact platform.
Said Keith Dawson, Principal Analyst at Ovum Research, "Cloud contact center
software has rapidly matured to deliver the benefits of traditional premise
applications with a more flexible and scalable model for consumption."
Continued Dawson, "inContact is leading the way in this market and this new
release delivers strong value for their growing customer base."
Additional highlights of the latest inContact release include:
The inContact Universal Queue: Work Item Routing and Contact Interlacing
The powerful Universal Queue automatically pushes a seamless flow of work
throughout the day to agents – based on their skills, availability and
customer priority. The Universal Queue orchestrates native inContact
channels, such as voice, email and chat as well as external contact center
work items, such as social media, trouble tickets and CRM cases….virtually ALL
work in the contact center. This intelligent routing system determines when
active channels, like voice, should take precedence over passive channels,
such as email. When a high-priority active communication is received, the
system automatically interrupts the email work, parks it in the agent's
personal cloud and then returns it to the agent when they are again
Enhanced User Interface: Power Agent
Built to comply with the work standards of the organization and the work-style
of the agent, the new Power Agent interface allows agents to answer calls,
transfer work items, send emails and respond to chat - all within one powerful
and unified interface. By eliminating the need navigate around their agent
interface and call controls, the agent can navigate more efficiently. This
lightweight interface can be resized and customized directly on the desktop to
meet the preferences of contact center managers and agents to create the most
efficient work environment.
True Dialer Blending
With new true dialer blending, agents can seamlessly switch between inbound
and outbound communication. As inbound and outbound campaigns are created, the
inContact platform allows for prioritization of those campaigns, which will
inform the system's routing decisions. Based on the varying levels of
prioritization, call centers can scale agents to address specific needs, and
make available other groups of agents with dual skills to handle both the
inbound and outbound communications as they arise. The blended queue is
equipped with the capabilities to analyze pending items and determine the
order in which they should be handled by the agent. Further, the system will
reference agent skill sets to route high-priority items to the most qualified
available agent, taking skills-based routing to the next level.
The inCloud Ecosystem
From mobile to social to workforce automation, CRM or analytics, the expanding
inCloud partner network provides single place to turn for all customer-facing
business solutions. inCloud gives partners the ability to quickly and easily
develop on the inContact platform. Through the release of three API
frameworks; Real-Time Data API, Admin API, and Chat API, independent
developers and customers will have the ability to transform internal and
external facing dashboards and mobile apps to best fit their needs.
Jarman concluded. "We believe that our latest innovative cloud release
addresses a significant gap in the marketplace and will help our customers
deliver a more seamless multichannel experience while enhancing the
productivity of their entire contact center operations."
